Yesterday, TimeTravel made a triumphant return to Casual Friday.. to spend some time House Jumping…and answering Questions about the F2P conversion, but mainly raids/dungeons.
The first house we see.. is TimeTravel’s…and, he decorates like I do… everything that provides a rested XP bonus put out, and kinda strewn around.
The Exile Plots we got to look at:
- Malzek RainFury
- Miss Diagnose
- Thiira Kellerman
The Dominion plots were:
- Codemike Technician
- Duke The
- Emperor Myrcalus
During Malzek RainFury’s plot, TT took the opportunity to get a jab in at Tony’s discovery that a room wasn’t a torture room (it was a BDSM room) during one of the Zero to Fifty streams…
Questions for this week were:
Q: More incentive to run adventures in F2P?
A: To be investigated, nothing on the table right now.
Q: Mastercrafted weapons/gear be BoE?
A: Crafted will be BoE, equipping for Embuement binds them.
Q: Rough timetable on next raid content?
A: Not this week, will announce when ready.
Q: Updated lists of instanced content by level.
A: Content finder will break that out and display it for WildStar:Reloaded
Q: ARe you going to add more raids anytime soon.. 10 man?
A: Not creating 10 man raid.. world bosses intended to be stepping stone between 5 person and 20 person content. so can be 10 man’d if you’re good.
Q: PvP Leaderboards?
A: Yes, they’re currently in the forums not on the site though. Its a placeholder though.. they want a more solid leaderboard in the future.
Q: More rewards for doing PvP?
A: Reloaded will also bring season 2 for PvP..not on day 1. Season 2 will start a few weeks after patch hits.. use time for balance/bugs/etc..armor sets will be rewards in new season (cosmetic)
Q: Perks for continuing to pay subscription after F2P?
A: Lots… describes signature benefits.
Q: Can we make shop play in F2P stop blinking?
A: Suggest it on the forums and it can be brought up with the UI team. Part of business model, has to have some level of attention called to it.
Q: Ever give out Boomboxes again?
A: Maybe some day.
Q: Can we get a toy of the person grapple from Maelstrom?
A: TT Explains the raid mechanic in question (sounds neat – used to move between platforms, or get back on platform after boss attack)..no plans to give to anyone outside the instance
Q: Can’t talk about raid itself yet, but is there any leeway for knowing general difficulty of raid?
A: Raids not intentionally being nerfed, but as new gear comes out, old content becomes easier. PvE raid sets not useable in PvP (and vice versa).
Q: Toybox for all the toys, or added to collectible tab?
A: On the wishlist.
Q: How many vanity mounts will there be?
A: Can’t give them all away, but there will be lots.
Q: If you guys owned any of the cosmetics, which would you say was the most popular?
A: Black/White dye is the most popular right now for players. Snarflelynx mount is cool too.
Q: Did Tony smell like Pumpkin Spice?
A: Tony always smells like Pumpkin Spice.
Q: Oceanic Servers coming with F2P?
A: Not at this time..Megaservers for everyone!
Q: Dawngrazer mount?
A: Can’t say yes, can’t say no.
Q: Race/Sex changes?
A: On the wishlist, not with Reloaded.
Q: Servers ready?
Q: Player Housing get a log book of all previously encountered mobs?
A: Housing doesn’t get leaderboards. Training FABKits are probably the closest now.
Q: Class/Race combo additions?
A: Lots of opportunity cost due to animation, armor artwork, etc..
Q: Would TimeTravel fight a Boulderback sized Jabbit, or a thousand jabbit sized boulderbacks.
A: Latter, because it sounds adorable.
Q: More love for EU
A: We love you EU!
Q: Dyes account bound with F2P, if not, is there a plan?
A: Some are, some aren’t.
Q: Wildstar being rebranded to WildStar reloaded?
A: Nope, just the name of the drop.
Q: How big is the patch on Tuesday?
A: Many gigs!
Q: Will you do some expansions?
Q: How often will new raids be released?
A: As often as we can, current raid tier has taken a long time, want to do it much quicker in the future.
Q: Can we copy all the PTR folders to live to reduce downtime?
A: You can, but CRB recommends a clean download, it can cause weirdness to copy over.
Q: How do I choose Exile or Dominon, how different is gameplay?
A: No differences in mechanics.
Q: What new system do you have for RPers?
A: RP systems don’t get players killed, outside of TT’s realm.
Q: What will the ingame store look like, and can we use ingame currency to buy stuff?
A: Log into PTR to look..yes, you can use omnibits.
Q: Plans to add more 18 slot bags?
Q: Community roundtable for 2015?
A: Want to, probably end up happening in 2016 though.
Multiple Fancy Pants Jacket codes were given away during the stream.
